Players I'd like to see, with the only potential lion included being Payne.
1. Kilcoyne, Buckley.
2. Scannell, Tracy, Strauss or maybe Heffernan.
3. Ryan, Bealham, Bent.
4. Treadwell, Molony.
8. Conan, O'Donoghue.
9. Marmion, McGrath.
10. Jackson, Carbery.
12. Scannell, Olding.

Given the travel involved and the long season, I'd nearly like to see 25 men go to the US for that test, after which half of them are excused from the Japan leg.
then fly another 12-15 straight to Japan for the final 2 tests, but these would have the benefit of a weeks break rather than flying to the US
If it was my choice I'd only consider players who'll be in a shout for the wc in 2 years.

Or, he'll bring the players who will make the Autumn Internationals squad - the RWC in 2019 is probably fifth on his priority list right now
